That was a harsh critique from Robin_1990
And it was on point!
The tenor of this show is as the character of the hillbillies themselves - honest, unpretentious, and endearing.
Human decency and kindness were once considered appropriate human qualities worthy of exhibition in plays and on television. Now, only moral depravity and social ugliness are considered to be proper subject matter for comedy.
I mourn for our lost innocence as a nation, and celebrate the fact that the notions of kindness, compassion, and honor, yet find expression in these old shows.
Thanks for the uploader for having given us these gems.
